2015-09-20 - Woodchuck Woodside Walkabout

~6.5 miles @ ~19.6 min/mi

"Groundhog Day!" At mile ~6 a big brown-black Marmota monax — aka woodchuck or whistle-pig, according to Wikipedia — lumbers across the street in front of DD Gray and me, then vanishes into the grass. We're finishing up a neighborhood walk that includes adventurous natural-surface digressions off the official trail on both sides of Sligo Creek, plus a bonus stop in a newly-reopened local ice cream parlor.
